Effects of Atrazine on Estrogen Receptor α– and G Protein–Coupled Receptor 30–Mediated Signaling and Proliferation in Cancer Cells and Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts
Atrazine belongs to the 2-chloro-s-triazine family of herbicides and is one the most common pesticide contaminants of groundwater and surface water (Miller et al. 2000). People who work in agriculture or reside near agricultural fields may have higher levels of exposure to atrazine through spray drift than the general population (Gammon et al. 2005).
